Brass nut on a graphite neck.

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Bassstud1, Feb 9, 2003.


  1. Gentlemen,

    I purchased a Moses neck for my MM5. It came with a plastic nut. I had a brass nut made for it in our factories tool and die shop. But before installing it I thought I would ask for others opinions. I don't know if it matters or not but my MM5 also has the piezo pickup. Do I use some kind of bonding agent to attach the nut? Thank you ahead of time for all your answers.

    That's a pretty good question.

    It's usually recomended that you not use a very strong adhesive to fasten the nut to facilitate replacement when it wears out. A brass nut, however will probably never wear out.

    I don't suppose it really matters. It wont have to be bonded very strongly because the strings pretty much keep it in place during use.

    The pup really wont have anything to do with how you fasten the nut on.

    Sounds like a great instrument.
